Reading from ID image

  • 1.  Reading from ID image

    Posted 09-24-2020 03:21

    Is there any way that I can read the information from the ID?
    Hint:the ID image exists in PDF file

    I did this steps:
    - Launch adobe acrobat reader from application modular.
    - put the PDF file path to open it
    - Identify  element that i want to read it from ID image using Region mode.
    - add Reader stage and Read text with OCR

    The steps above is worked and gave me the results, but this method is static and maybe the location of the element changes from file to another ,Can you help me to find dynamic method to take information from ID ?

    If you want any additional information please let me know
    Best Regards,

    Thank you for contacting us.
    The issue when using Region Mode, you are assuming the image will be the same all the time, if for some reason fail, well no much the process can't do.

    You hope to build a robust process to control any issue, reload the file, move the correct location or page, etc.

    Another idea is based on your PDF file is not lock of format, to allow you to copy all (CTRL+A) and paste in Word; no, this allows you more control.
    I hope this helps a little in your situation.

    Also, take a look at this KB Article "How do I work with Adobe Acrobat PDF documents."
